Los Angeles Truck Accident Lawyer
Tenacious Advocates for Victims of Truck Accidents in Sherman Oaks & Los Angeles
Trucks and big rigs are regular sights on Los Angeles freeways. Although we all exercise caution while driving near large trucks, we cannot control or predict the actions of truck drivers.

At Priority Law Group, A.P.L.C., our Los Angeles truck accident attorney fiercely advocates for our injured clients.

5 Things To Do When You’re In A Truck Accident:
- Check for injuries and seek medical attention
- Exchange information with the truck driver, including their name, address, phone number, insurance company, license number, employer, trucking company
- Document the scene by taking pictures, video, audio recordings, and/or detailed notes
- Contact the police by calling 911 and file an accident report
- Never admit fault—contact a lawyer before taking any other steps
Causes of Truck Accidents
Unfortunately, it is not rare for truck drivers to violate safety regulations, such as Hours of Operation, in an effort to meet a deadline. In some cases, they are pressured by trucking companies to meet strict deadlines, which leads to fatigue. In addition to fatigue, there are many other negligence related causes of truck accidents.
Truck accidents are often caused by:
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Alcohol and drug use
- Poor driver training
- Lack of sufficient truck maintenance
- Faulty parts
If you were injured in a truck accident, our Los Angeles and Sherman Oaks truck accident lawyer wishes to help you seek the compensation you need by filing an injury claim against the at-fault party, such as the trucking company or their insurance company. There may be many sources of possible compensation in truck accidents, depending on the cause of the accident. We have decades of experience finding and seeking compensation from the responsible party in truck accidents.
Compensation in Truck Accidents
The size difference between big rigs and the average passenger vehicle leaves those in the car at greater risk of severe injury in an accident. You may be left with expensive medical bills, extensive rehabilitation, a long recovery period, extreme pain and suffering, and an inability to work during the recovery period. We are prepared to litigate your case to obtain fair compensation for your economic and non-economic damages.
Truck accidents cause injuries, such as:
- Severe whiplash
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
The at-fault party depends on the circumstances of the accident. Often, the trucking company or their insurance company is responsible for the damages when the driver is at fault or the accident was caused by lack of proper maintenance. We will carefully evaluate your case to find all possible sources of compensation for your injuries.
